A lot of good stuff here--thx. Finding good provider/APIs/databses is often the barrier, and then time. 
Thank you! And yeah, time...

  • Nutrition: I mean to have something like a nutrition facts label for searches on "peanut butter" or "doritos."
  • Wikia: great!
  • thumbnails: mos def, though is it me or loading them delayed shakes a bit the results page on adjusting? if it's so, perhaps you can limit their dimensions with CSS or something along the lines.
  • parts & models: I don't know about Amazon API, do they provide part information? It would be killer to have a search "toshiba satellite XYZ" and land on the product's technical details page (same for Samsung, Dell, etc.)
  • compiler/cpu: search for compiler intrinsics _mm_alignr_epi8 and the result gives a very small MSDN page with a short description, Intel's (original) page nowhere in sight. Note Google is even worse as results are usually plagued with forums and such.
  • music samples: yeah, "the beatles blackbird" does already show on top the link to the Wikipedia page, what about a little div with the clip ready to play? :)
  • financial data: What's "WA"?

It's weird to speak almost real-time about features on a site like this. You're a legend!


Edit: example of Nutrition Data  that data is pulled from the public database and made nice into those graphs.
